Masqueology

Birchbox Breakdown

When it comes to pores, we live by one rule: the smaller, the better. But truth be told, shrinking our enlarged pores seemed like an impossible task until we found these targeted sheet masks. They hydrate skin while reducing pore size (especially in the T-zone area). We like to use them in lieu of pricey professional facials. Each package contains three individually sealed masks.

How it Works

Each single-use mask may look like, well, wet paper, but it's actually dripping with complexion-saving ingredients. For starters, sodium hyaluronate prevents water loss and enhances your skin’s ability to soak up moisture. Next, panthenol calms red, irritated skin, while mushroom extract is a natural brightener that fades the look of acne scars and brown spots alike. Finally, ceramide 3 hydrates and helps skin look smoother, with less visible pores.

How to Use

Start with clean skin. Unfold the mask and lay it over your face, adjusting it so the eyes, nose and mouth openings are comfortable. Then, kick your feet up and hang for 20 minutes. When you’re ready, toss the mask and rub in the remaining gel.

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Allantoin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Caviar Extract, Fructan, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Panthenol, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Bark/Leaf/Twig Extract, Glycine, Glutamic Acid, Serine, Aspartic Acid, Leucine, Alanine, Lysine, Arginine, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Proline, Valine, Isoleucine, Histidine, Methionine, Cysteine, Fomes Officinalis (Mushroom) Extract, Ceramide 3, Xanthan Gum, Polysorbate 80, Disodium EDTA, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol.

Pretty good, not my fave

After reading other such glowing reviews (including Martha Stewart, apparently a daily user) I was really excited to use this product!

I don't know that I've had the miraculous transformation that others have described here, but it certainly was good for a Self-Care Saturday.

Pros:
Skin feels nice and soft afterwards
General pampering feeling

Cons:
Mask is difficult to unfold/apply correctly
Eye/nose/mouth holes are in a strange proportion
Mask felt slimy and did not stay in place well
Liquid afterwards was difficult to massage in

Bottom line: I'll use up the rest of the packets, but I don't know that it'll be a re-purchase.

Skin feels great afterwards!
Purchased

As a special treat, I use the pore minimizing mask. Afterwards, my skin feels smooth and my pores do look smaller. I love that you can leave the serum on your skin after your done with the mask!

Feels good but not effective

This mask feels great. It also smells great. I love the packaging, as well. I was impressed with everything, but the effectiveness. It does hydrate, but my pores looked the same after use. I won't purchase again.

Love, Love, Love

I cannot believe the difference. My skin was completely transformed after use. The mask was a little weird at first but after about five minutes it was prefect.

Fun Girls night in

I get together with running buddies and do out of town runs a few times a year. And I took these along on a recent run trip and shared during a fun night in with the girls. Perfect skin prep for the next mornings race, we all commented at breakfast how nice are faces felt and the silly pics/memories were a bonus!!

Not impressed

The mask itself is almost too slippery to be placed properly onto your face and the cutouts for eyes/nose/mouth seem to be oddly shaped. I didn't notice any changes in my skin after use.

Makes skin feel very soft

I'm not sure I saw much difference in my pores, but this mask feels nice when its on and leaves skin soft and glowing.

A little awkward

The product itself is great. My face felt SO good after using this product. I bought the full size after getting the sample in my box. However, it's a little awkward to use and "slid" a little on my face. I am too busy to lie down while doing a facial, so that's a little annoying. But if that's ok with you, this product does make your skin feel great.

Bright and beautiful

I LOVE these masks! They are kinda pricey considering you only get 3 in the pack but I loved them so much I purchased a full size box. Theses masks just perk your skin up immediately. Your skin looks fresh, moisturized and glowing after you use it and your pores look much smaller. And its non irritating. Definitely recommended, especially before a big event!
